In this paper, we de ne the concepts of compatibility between two
fuzzy subsets on Q, the set of states of a max- min general fuzzy automaton
and transitivity in a max-min general fuzzy automaton. We then construct a
uniform structure on Q, and de ne a topology on it. We also de ne the concept
of semi-uniform structures on a nonempty set X and construct a semi-uniform
structure on the set of states of a general fuzzy automaton. We then construct
a semi-uniform structure on , the set of all nite words on , the set of
input symbols of a general fuzzy automaton and, nally, using these semi-
uniform structures, we construct two topologies on Q and  and discuss their
